I’m always curious to learn what happens when new retirement initiatives are announced. It is now one year after the myRA was announced. Did you know that the only way to contribute to a myRA account is through payroll deductions? And that there is a maximum limit of $15,000 that can be held in those accounts until they are required to be rolled over into a traditional IRA? The article is also of interest because it reminds us of something that we can probably all relate to regardless of the type of retirement account that we have. The author says that “it is important to think about how to convert your portfolio into income that will last throughout retirement. Fixed indexed annuities can play an important role in strengthening your retirement plan by providing that vehicle of guaranteed income.” Call us if these issues are of concern to you.
